Preparation

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Poke a few holes in the aubergine.
  • Roast the aubergines in the oven until al dente. This takes about half an hour.
  • The eggplant is ready when you can press it in, but the fruit still feels firm. Allow the aubergine to cool slightly, and then peel off the skin.
  • Cut the aubergine into oblong slices 1.5 cm thick.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of butter, 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice in a pan.
  • Fry the aubergine slices in this mixture for about 2 minutes per side. Then remove the aubergines from the pan and let them cool.
  • Bread the aubergine slices by turning them first in the flour, then in the beaten egg and finally in the panko breadcrumbs.
  • Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in a pan and fry the aubergine cutlets in it until golden brown and crispy. Serve immediately.
